Going 2 years in a row this year with my group. Oh and we go to Disney in the off year, so that means we spend a lot of money this year for both state and Disney.
I know your answer. You can choose not to go to state. Yeah, right! Try that and see how that goes with your kids, parents, and community. SO, yeah, that's not going to happen.
There is a reason why we don't go to state every year. $$$$$$$$$$ It's toooooooo expensive and it burns out the kids.
